Why Treddies

TREDDIES SHOE SOCKS


 Treddies are a machine-washable cotton-blend shoe sock with a moulded rubber sole.  Cotton blends are known for their durability and they also allow little feet to breathe. The flexible moulded sole fits closely to the foot while the ripple design provides traction and protection.  


THE INNER SOLES


Treddies come with optional lightweight inner soles. We recommend that Treddies are used without the inner soles and this allows your children’s feet to be even closer to the barefoot environment. See you below for all the developmental benefits for your children’s lower limbs and movement.

 

BAREFOOT BENEFITS


Research shows that walking and running barefoot, particularly in early childhood, stimulates the nerves and muscles to develop a strong and vital structure.  

TREDDIES HELP YOUR CHILD'S FEET DEVELOP COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL SHOES BY:
  1. Allowing for increased nerve stimulation and muscle activation.
  2. Promoting the development of stronger bones and connective tissues.
  3. Assisting your child in learning to absorb impact on the ground with their own muscles.
  4. Helping your child develop more efficient movement patterns and therefore be less prone to lower limb injuries through life.

The best thing you can do for your child’s feet is to have their feet comfortable and protected, and as close to barefoot as possible.

“Optimum foot development occurs in the barefoot environment... shoe selection for children should be based on the barefoot model”
Paediatrics: Journal of the American Academy of Paediatrics

“…slimmer and more flexible children’s shoes do not change foot motion as much as conventional shoes …. And should be recommended for healthy children”
Gait and Posture Journal 

“Small children should have a sports shoe which is as flexible as their own foot…… there is a growing necessity for adequate mechanical stimuli to help the muscles and bones develop”
Foot and Ankle Surgery Journal

 

HAPPY LITTLE MOVERS


Treddies shoe socks are designed with your child’s growth and development in mind, helping them become efficient, healthy and happy little movers — because all babies and toddlers deserve the best start possible.
